Hedgehog's Home - Ćopić
Welcome to the world of Hedgemond the Hunter, a brave and stubborn little hedgehog. Down in the wild woods he proudly tends his beloved house, but there are some animals who just can’t understand what the fuss is about! Find out just how Hedgemond proves to the grumpy bear and the greedy boar that there truly is no place like home.
Hedgehog’s House is a story about caring for your natural habitat. Set in the unspoilt environment of the forest, we find the wild creatures arguing about what home means: is it simply a place we should take for granted, or is it something to be cherished and protected? Despite the persuasions of charming Miss Fox and the jeers of the angry wolf, Hedgemond steadfastly proves that his home is his castle, reminding us all that we each need to care for the places we live.
"I bought a copy of the book and love the story and the rhyming. Beautifully designed and printed. If there are young children in your life, then I recommend that you get your copy from Istros."
John Bird, Big Issue
'The translator has done an excellent job of recreating this gentle tale in English about the significance of home and caring for your natural habitat, enabling a new generation of children to enjoy the writing of one of the Balkan’s most famous writers. Accompanied by charming illustrations by Croatian artist Sanja Rescek this is a perfect book for sharing and reading aloud.'
Prijevod ovako značajnog djela dječje književnosti sasvim sigurno nije bio jednostavan zadatak, no prevoditeljica je za svoj posao zaslužila najviše moguće ocjene: prijevod je jasan, posve razumljiv djeci, zaigran, pitak, i povrh svega – može se reći da gotovo potpuno uspijeva zadržati izvorni duh i ritam Ćopićeva djela, pri čemu niti na tren ne djeluje neprirodno, forsirano ili doslovno.
